  • Song Lyrics:
    Maybellene, why can't you be true
    Oh, Maybellene, why can't you be true,
    You've started back doin' the things you used to do.
    As I was motivatin' over the hill,
    I saw Maybellene in a Coup de Ville
    A Cadillac a-rollin' on an open road
    Nothin' will outrun my V-8 Ford
    The Cadillac doin' about Ninety Five,
    She's bumper to bumper, rollin' side by side.


    The Cadillac pulled up ahead of the Ford
    The Ford got hot, wouldn't do no more.
    It then got cloudy and started to rain.
    I tooted my horn for a passin' lane.
    The rain water blowin' all under my hood,
    I knew that was doin' my motor good
    The motor cooled down, the heat went down,
    And that's when I heard that highway sound.
    The Cadillac asittin' like a ton of lead,
    A hundred an ten, half a mile ahead.
    The Cadillac lookin' like it's sittin' still,
    And I caught Maybellene at the top of the hill.

    (I B Emerson)
